I drive from 9:00 to 10:00AM till 4:30 to 5:00PM. How far I get depends on how many stops and how long we stop in between. (Life is a journey and it's not how long it takes to get there but what you have seen along the way.)

We rarely travel more than 200 miles per day, and try to keep it under 150. We also travel without reservations...but, then, we mostly boondock/dry camp. However, even those times we stay at an RV park, because we stop early in the day (2 or 3 PM, and always by 4), we've never had a problem finding a place to stay. (We are not parking lot overnighters.)

We are usually destination travelling so the miles are usually quite high. Myrtle Beach is 2 days and Florida is 3. The Florida trip is in cold weather so we needd at least 500 miles to get to an open rv park in southern Va.
However, there's a trip in planning for next summer to Kansas and then north and back home. No time frame for travel except several weeks so day to day travel will probably be a lot shorter.

On long trips, we usually average about 100 miles a day on the coach and about 50 on the toad. We usually like to stay 2 days in one spot and explore the other day. If we are going from point A to Point B, we usually go 6 to 8 hours. Usually we are just poking around and don't really know where we are going to spend the night.

Not retired yet, either, so on long trips to a destination we do travel 500 miles per day. It is expensive, but worth it when we get to the destination and relax for two weeks.

That 500 Miles will cost $200.00 whether you do it in 1 day or 2 days. Also if done in 2 days there may be extra cost for overnighting.
